East Wall Has Begun

Over the last several days the Ski Patrol Snow Safety Team has been hard at work prepping the East Wall. They have shot the avalauncher and they have run routes in several places including The Tree Chutes, North Pole, Humbug Chutes and Hidden Chute. A few small / medium slides have occured as a result of their work. They have done a combination of using explosives, ski cutting and ski packing. Typically, The Wall opens once the base gets in the 50'ish inch range.
